2GIG EDGE: Unboxing
In this video, James the Video Guy from Alarm Grid unboxes the 2GIG Edge Alarm Panel. The Edge was first released by Nortek Control and 2GIG in early 2021. This highly advanced state-of-the-art security system provides all of the features and functions you could possibly want. Some of the more advanced features for the 2GIG Edge Alarm System include optional Automatic Bluetooth Disarming, Facial Recognition Disarming, built-in LTE cellular connectivity, integrated WIFI, and Z-Wave Plus V2 700-Series technology. This security system and automation controller will make an excellent addition to your home or business. It easily integrates with the Alarm.com Security Notification and Smart Home Automation Platform for added functionality and remote access from virtually anywhere in the world using a mobile app or web browser.
There are plenty of features that help make the Edge an extremely exciting alarm system that will certainly leave you on the EDGE of your seat. The system is operated and controlled using its 7-inch LCD touchscreen controller. There are four (4) configurable partitions that you can use to section-off the system so that different areas of your home or business are individually controlled. This is great for restricting access to certain areas, while making other areas fully accessible. The 2GIG Edge has support for up to 100 wireless zones, 100 different user codes, 32 key fob devices, eight (8) external keypads, and 232 Z-Wave devices. Keep in mind that Alarm.com has a smaller Z-Wave device limit of 122 Z-Wave devices. You can use encrypted 2GIG eSeries Sensors with the 2GIG Edge, as well as non-encrypted 345 MHz sensors from the Honeywell 5800 Series and the 2GIG 345 MHz Series. Other features for the system include an internal glass break detection sensor, one-touch arming, emergency panic buttons, a front panel camera, chime, 2-way voice, live-streaming for compatible Alarm.com Cameras, a wired bell output, two (2) open-collector outputs, and more!
